Description: 

As the story ends, Charles Mallison is in uniform and on his way to Texas for training as a pilot ("from preflight to basic, airplanes at last," 252). The text doesn't say where in Texas he's going, but the most likely spot is Greenville, where in 1942 the Army opened a training field on the "flat land to the west" of Mississippi, as the later novel The Mansion puts it in a reference to this field.
